I posted this in back of some thread on the bb forum, so i wnated to put it up front so people can see what is really going on behind the geared numbers.
2447/ 226 geared up in comp- 10.82
1900/ 225 estimated belt only total- 8.44
thought i would edit and put actual numbers just for comparisons sake cause i know i wonder what people get out of gear sometimes.
geared- 1108/ 639/ 700 (have pulled 750 tho)
raw belt only- 740/ 450-475 paused/ 700
so about 600 pounds on my total from my Titan gear. dont know how that compares to others, but i would say its on par with most others on the 'pro' circuit give or take. Some of the bench guys are liable to get more, but then may not get as much from squat suit... so i dont know. ild say its fairly representative. maybe that can put some perspective on things for guys who have never used gear and are curious.
to put something in perspective tho, Donnie's recent 2905 total would be around a raw 2300! A few years ago (2006) at a raw meet Donnie hit 2170 (nearly a 2255) and his geared total has gone up alot since then, and i assume his raw strength the same.
raw: 805 (855 missed on depth!)/ 565 (600 miss at lockout)/ 800 DL = 2170 (near 2255)
geared:1235/ 910/ 760= 2905
so difference of 700 pounds based on old raw numbers. I dont know what his total was in 2006, somewhere around 2600 tho?
